In 1911, Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting Movement, began facilitating a series of lectures for adult Scout leaders. By 1919, those first steps had led to the establishment of a formal training course. To recognize the completion of the course, Baden-Powell presented participants with a simple wooden bead tied on a leather boot lace. Because of these beads, the course came to be known as Wood Badge. Wood Badge recipients now number more than 100,000 and can be found all around the world.
Wood Badge is a course for all Scout leaders, Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders, as well as council and district leaders. Its focus is on leadership, emphasizing modern leadership skills. Regardless of whether you are a new scout leader or a seasoned volunteer, you will learn to be a more effective leader in any position you hold in scouting.
Wood Badge is considered by many as a peak experience in their Scouting careers. Wood Badge leaders have affected the lives of millions of America’s youth. All units deserve the best-trained leaders.
The first part of the Wood Badge course reflects unit meetings, while the second part of the course uses a unit camping activity as its delivery model. We promise an exciting and fun-filled program.
